Puma has extended its range of sneakers and apparel for the Spring/Summer ’18 season and has joined forces with the acclaimed New York-based visual artist Shantell Martin. She’s known for her stream-of-consciousness drawings, illustrations and light projections, combining the whimsical and autobiographical, bridging the gap between fine art, performance art and everyday life. The Puma X Shantell Martin is an exploring of that signature style, bringing the unconventional to a range of classic Puma silhouettes.
Puma is known for quality materials and pushing the boundaries of design. The new range combines monochromatic looks and intricate detailing, both of which exploring light-heartedness and truth-seeking. The collection stands out as truly unique, bold and playful. The range draws on inspiration from Shantell’s unique creative DNA and her passion for self-exploration. This latest collection combines Puma’s innovative designs from their archive to create an expressive production offering. From Puma’s archive, the collection introduces new look classics for the Puma Suede and Clyde, as well as the women’s Platform Strap silhouette – all alongside new apparel offerings.
